2014 TOYOTA PRIUS v: As the newest entrant in a growing Toyota Prius family of hybrid vehicles, the 2014 Prius v is the largest member that combines top fuel efficiency in a comfortable, mid-size package. Configured as a five-door hatchback, the Prius v ("v" for versatility), is front-wheel drive, powered by an efficient Atkinson cycle 98 horsepower 1.8-liter four-cylinder engine and two high-output motors. The larger motor powers the transaxle and a smaller motor works as the electric power source. Maximum motor drive voltage is 650 volts DC, for a total of 134hp that is matched with a continuously variable transmission (CVT). Combined with its five-passenger cabin, the Prius v provides a low, wide-opening rear hatch with 34.3 cubic feet of cargo space behind the rear seats, and 67.3 cu. ft. behind the front seats. Those numbers make it the most spacious dedicated hybrid vehicle on the market. A new feature, Pitch and Bounce Control, works with suspension enhancements to improve ride comfort and control. The top-of-the-line audio is equipped with a new seven-inch Premium HDD navigation system, Entune and JBL. This system offers a split-screen feature that allows for simultaneously displaying navigation and audio information and full iPod video integration. Also available, and a Toyota-first, is a resin Panoramic View Moonroof with power retractable sun shades. Standard wheels are 16 inches in diameter, with 17 inch wheels available as an option.
